Nissan LEAF to power Bristol reign as Europe’s Green Capital
The city has become the first in the UK to gain the Green Capital status and will roll out a programme of events throughout the year, helped by the LEAFs.
The vehicles have been provided by Nissan Motor (GB) and local Nissan dealer Wessex Garages – Bristol 2015’s official vehicle partners.
Zoe Sear, director at Bristol 2015 Ltd, said: “Transport is one of five themes that we are focusing on during our year as the UK’s first European Green Capital.
“For us, these five branded Nissan LEAFs are not just a convenient way to get around – they are emblems of what the future will look like in terms of car use; they are a visual reminder that Bristol is the Green Capital of Europe; and they are a sustainable way for us to get out to events right across the city and engage with members of the public about what it means to create a happier, healthier city for future generations.”
Charging points are available at a large number of locations across Bristol including Wessex Garages’ Pennywell Road dealership.
